    instead of directly applying polish on the surface you put in on the machine so that it doesnt spill over due to the action.
    secondly after applying polish to whole car you have to wait for 50 min for polish to dry. it will give you whitish appearance all over.
    then take a cotton waste and remove the excess polish by hand. you will see a perfect layer of coat.

    Guys,

    Be careful while using these machines. If the pressure applied is slightly uneven it may harm the body surface. These machines are suggested to be used by professionals not to say that we ourselves can't use it as DIY but be careful.
  3. hey bro could you explain how it would harm the surface??

    Well i think, starting of with very gentle polishing and then learning ahead from there is the key to success i guess.

    The issue is if the pressure exerted on the machine is more or if the machine is kept on the same spotfor more time than required, it can burn off the paint finish.

    no issues at all. its very simple. it cannot harm the body. you have to put a microfiber cloth on the rotor, dont use the motor sponge.
    mainly no need to exert any pressure on the machine. keep the machine on the surface and push it. its own weight and buffing action does the trick and gives even layer of coat.

    Car Wax is a generic term that has been used to describe products containing organic. There are many things that determine the durability of a particular car wax. Quality of preparation prior to waxing, Frequency and method of washing, and Amount of UV exposure.

    I have orbital polisher and it works best with liquid polishes. Wax / cream polishes tend to stick on the pad. The results often does not matches with the type the professional rotary or cylindrical polishers.

    I bought the powermaxx orbital polisher hoping it will give me some good results but ... it instead gave me streaks , luckily they were just wax streaks that dimmed over time.Its just a waste, stay away from these as it is not so easy to use and might just screw up ur paint job. But if you have made your mind up to buy one, get one with variable speed but use it with caution and dont press hard or keep it at one place for a long time.
